Teden slovenske drame

2nd professional meeting of make-up artists from Slovenian theatre

Make-up artists are rarely discussed outside theatre and they receive less attention than some other creators of performances, but just like lighting and sound engineers, together with the actors they create the magic of theatre, night after night, performance after performance. When the creation of actors disappears with the applause and the bow, the masterpieces of the make-up artists disappear with the swipe of a cleansing wipe.Until the next performance.
On the other hand, creating theatre make-up requires expertise in different techniques that are constantly developed. Likewise, the visual expression develops with them.In the Slovenian theatre space as well, the theatre make-up has found for itself a creative space, not only as a technical medium, but as an independent expression.
